Thursday in SF

October 29, 2010 - Jill Gosche
Today was another great day in San Francisco!

The opening keynote address by Rafe Esquith did not disappoint. I had read his book, "Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire" and had been looking forward to his talk. He was wonderful. He told us about his own Los Angeles classroom and how his students act. He also talked about the six levels of moral development, with the top level meaning students do the right thing because it is who they are, not because they are seeking recognition.

Shortly after the opening, Sentinel presented its program about character education. National Schools of Character are required to present at the conference. Tiffin should be proud of the Sentinel group -- it was really neat to hear them sharing such helpful information. I really think the people who heard their presentation have a lot of information to take home and use in their own schools. They really shared the spotlight with the Tiffin community.

Up next Friday is the award presentation!
